KILZ OVER ARMOR® Textured is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sludge! I put the first coat of this son my porch floor today. I used a trowel for the entire job. Does not pour out of the can like in the video. Impossible to stir with ordinary wooden paint stir sticks. No mention of stirring Kong the can. Instructions say it can’t be cut with water or anything else. How do I get the second coat to pour out of the can Kilz?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware I should’ve listened to the other reviews. The product seems to be great, but you CAN NOT spread this with a roller. A squeegee would’ve worked great but I was forced to use a paint stick. On my hands and knees spreading the product with a paint stick. Knowing what I know now, I definitely would’ve bought Valspar instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for workshop wood floor covering Needed 150 sq ft covered and protected. Since so many online complained about coverage I bought 4 gallons. Turns out I only needed the 2 gallons suggested (each gallon delivering 2 coats of 75 sq ft => 2 gallons covers 150 sq ft in two coats). It is thick, but I had no trouble using a smooth/semi-smooth roller on an aluminum pole.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY Great texturing BUT that’s it! Extremely thick, tried applying it with a roller brush and extender pole. Snapped my pole in half. First coat applied and cured for a week with perfect sunny weather. Second coat applied and cured for 4 days. Today has been a hard drizzle kind of day (first day of precipitation since applying). THE PAINT HAS BUBBLED UP AND IS FILLED WITH WATER. NOT HAPPY AT ALL

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Question Why is it not usable on a garage floor, other than it is extremely thick?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from High Maintenance but Satisfactory If you've never applied this product, read the instructions very carefully before buying it, to make sure you know what you're getting into. It's very thick in the can and hard to brush or roll. A new roller sleeve doesn't absorb well initially. After using even a thick sleeve, it becomes more of a low pile smooth sleeve after a few rolls. It also dries very fast (in a non-ideal way). I lost probably 1/2 a quart of my gallon because it turned to goo on the can, lid, brush, sleeve and edges of the paint tray. It's really thick, like sludge. I'd recommend you buy 25-50% more than you calculated if you're applying outdoors as a result of it's fast drying. I was scraping the can for all I could get out just to get 75% of the 75 sq feet in two coats it says it provides. Just work fast, plan ahead. I don't know if there's really a better alternative product, and now that it's done, it looks as I expected. Thus I'd still recommend it.

The following steps and products are required.

  • For failing coatings or to remove loose wood fibers, use a product such as KILZ® Wood Stain & Finish Stripper followed by KILZ® Wood Cleaner & Brightener to neutralize the wood.

  • When KILZ Wood Stain & Finish Stripper is not needed, a product such as KILZ Wood Cleaner & Brightener MUST be used to properly prepare and clean existing or new wood surfaces.

  • After using either KILZ Wood Stain & Finish Stripper or KILZ Wood Cleaner & Brightener, rinse thoroughly with a garden hose or pressure washer.

  • When rinsing with a pressure washer, use the broadest spray pattern while keeping the nozzle at least 24" away from the surface. • Allow the area to dry at least 24 hours before coating. Lightly sand to remove remaining wood fibers/fuzz.


  • DO NOT DILUTE. Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity. Stir product occasionally throughout application.

  • For best results, apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F. During application, avoid exposure of container to direct sunlight. Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. Avoid painting if humidity is expected to be greater than 80%.

  • For nail holes and cracks up to 6 mm (1/4"), completely fill in with KILZ OVER ARMOR Textured Coating using a nylon/ polyester brush and allow to dry prior to rolling. Deep nail holes and cracks may require additional filling.

  • For edges, corners and in between wood boards, apply using a nylon/polyester brush. Use pressure while rolling and apply a generous, even coat using a 1/2" nap roller. For a smoother texture, use a brush or thinner nap roller (i.e. 1/4").

  • For vertical wood application such as such as railings, use a nylon/polyester brush or roller and apply two thin coats at a spread rate of 400 sq. ft. per gallon.

  • Do not use with airless sprayer. Maintain a wet edge when applying.

  • A SECOND COAT MUST BE APPLIED for optimum performance, film uniformity, leveling and to cover cracks.

Dry Time

  • Wait 4-6 hours before recoating. Dries to touch in 4 hours. Wait 24-48 hours before light foot traffic. 72 hours for full cure. Additional dry time may be needed in cooler temperatures and higher humidity. Premature heavy traffic will cause coating failure.

Clean up & Disposal

  • Clean equipment and paint spatters with warm, soapy water. If spilled, contain material and remove with an inert absorbent. Dispose of contaminated absorbent, container and unused product in accordance with all current governmental regulations.

  • Do not dispose of this product down a drain. Please consider donating any unused product. For recycling or disposal information contact your local household refuse collection service.

Cautions / Limitations
